In brief: Lactose Intolerance

Once you got it, you got it for good.
Only treatment is to use the lactaid digestive tablets with meals or to use lactose-free dairy products.

In brief: Problem may resolve

Lactase is an enzyme that digests milk sugar (lactose).
When one loses the lactase from the lining of his intestine, he can't digest lactose anymore. Loss of lactase enzyme can happen after diarrhea, but people who are not destined to lose their lactase as they get older, can make new lactase and start digesting lactose again. Some believe slowly resuming milk-drinking helps lactase enzyme return.

People who are genetically fated to stop producing the lactase enzyme, i.e. to become lactose-intolerant, are out of luck. Once the lactase gene turns off, it cannot be induced; i.e., drinking milk, a little or a lot, gradually building up or not, will not turn the gene back on again. I became lactose-intolerant at age 38.
